Abbot Emeritus Patrick Barry, OSB, on the occasion of his Anniversary

First of all, a blessed Christmas morning to you all -- and you and your families were all remembered at the Sung Mass of Christmas this morning.

That aside, the following comes to the NLM from the Benedictine Abbey of Ss. Gregory and Augustine.

Abbot Patrick Barry, OSB, the Abbot-Emeritus of Ampleforth Abbey (the Mother House of Ss. Greogry and Augustine) celebrated the usus antiquior on Saturday.

The Abbot turned 90 on St. Nicholas Day and to mark the occasion, he desired to say the Mass for which he was ordained, and in the context of which he spent the first 25 years of his priesthood.

A beautiful occasion. They intend to send me more pictures soon.
